The 2016 Fiat 500e electric car remains a small, fun-to-drive, and economical plug-in minicar whose owners and lessees exult in its smooth and silent acceleration, zippy handling, and cheerful character. For its fourth model year, the 500e gets the latest Uconnect in-dash infotainment system, along with a pair of new paint colors.
The Fiat 500e is a battery-electric adaptation of the little three-door hatchback minicar that reintroduced the Italian brand to U.S. buyers in 2012. Released one year later than the various gasoline versions, the electric 500 is offered for sale only in California and Oregon.
Depending on its color, you might have to look twice to distinguish an electric Fiat 500 from its cousins with combustion engines. The 500e has unique front and rear bumper assemblies, door-sill extensions, and some other trim pieces; in darker colors, they pretty much blend in like any other 500. The electric car can also be ordered in bright orange with white contrast panels--and that one does stand out.Read more on TheCarConnection site
